Hello everyone. We made it! Today is the last shooting day for HOMELAND Season One.

I wanted to be able to say thanks to all of you and this is the only way that I know to do it....

From myself, and the entire Costume Dept, please accept our most heartfelt gratitude for working with us on this show. You have all been fantastic!!

Thanks for reading the blog and doing your best to bring what I asked for. You cannot possibly know how helpful it was that you were participating in the process. My guess is that you learned a couple of things along the way about what colors and patterns are good (and not good) for camera, and hopefully that will come in handy when you go on other Back Ground calls.

Thanks for your patience and understanding when the mornings weren't going well and things got a little rough. Thanks for your willingness to return and do it all over again.

Those of us that have been in this business for years have all commented on how professional you have been and what a pleasure it was to be working with you as our Back Ground group. Trust me when I say, that is not always the case! We feel like we have made some friends here and hope to see many of you again in the future.

For the countless times that you have loaded your closet into your car; for the many times that you've been here for hours and on camera for 15 minutes; for keeping up with the different changes throughout the day; and for having a great attitude, you are all to be praised!

And before I close...How about a nice round of applause for Tona Dalhquist, ladies and gentlemen. Tona, you have been absolutely fantastic! Every time they threw you a curve (uh, daily) you hit it out of the park!! Thank you!

I hope to see you all next season and wish for everyone all the best. Thank you!
Stephen K Randolph
Costume Supervisor
